Event Description

Inpost Artspace presents The Magnificent Void, in conjunction with Women & Creativity 2013.

The Magnificent Void: Paintings by Heather Bingham, Stacey Heim, & Celeste LaForme

 

As a meditative process, Zen masters have long contemplated the notion that the space between objects can hold more meaning than the objects themselves. The Magnificent Void features the artwork of three Albuquerque-based female artists whose work uses line, shape, and color to explore concepts of space and what lies between.

Exhibition Runs: March 2 – 29, 2013

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 2nd 5-8p

About the artists

 

Heather Bingham was born in San Diego, California and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She has studied drawing and painting at CNM and UNM. She makes flat acrylic paintings based on the small drawings she composes, each upholding in its own idiosyncratic logic.

 

Stacey Heim's earliest memories are of the objects she grew up with; the earthy smell and texture of the cork lamp that sat in her living room, the symmetrical shape of the 8-track player, or the blue, black and white plaid upholstery of her parents 1970s Chevy pick-up. She continues to be informed by her surroundings and incorporates inspirations of shape, line, color or anything that provokes her curiosity and engages her imagination, into colorful non-objective paintings. Stacey Heim, a Michigan native born in 1972, now resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She received her MFA from the University of Wisconsin in 2008 where she studied printmaking and painting. While living in Silver City, New Mexico, she attended Western New Mexico University where she received her BFA

 

Celeste LaForme grew up with the land. She spent her youth with horses and dogs on the mesas near Abiquiu, New Mexico. Her closest friends were plants and animals and rocks. Entering adulthood, moving into the hot concrete city and a more modern world culture, she was introduced to boundaries, limitations, and an overall sense of disconnect from what she intuitively saw as natural. This disconnect is what inspires her artistic work. She am most concerned with the natural world and it’s relation to human impact, endangered species and environments, human and animal rights, and the idea of land ownership and borders. Her paintings contain no solvents, heavy metals, toxic chemicals or known carcinogens
